42% Rousanne, 42% Viognier, & 16% Grenache Blanc. I always have such high hopes for CA white Rhone blends, but they all too often fall short, taste fabricated, & show entirely too much heat. Nose is overripe and tropical, & brings more then enough baking spice. Vanilla extract, brown sugar, & nutmeg are overbearing. Listed at 14.8%, but I would bet that's low. Finish is blasted by its abv, & all sense of balance, & small lot craftsmanship is lost. Any suggestions for CA white Rhone?

White blend with character and personality. The ripe stone fruit flavors from Viognier and the more floral Roussane with a little grenache blanc to finish the blend. 10% of the wine was fermented in neutral oak giving the wine some complexity and waxy texture without tiring the palate.

Had it in 2015 with Tanya and Lena at il cortile restaurant in Paso Robles. We all loved it, looking to buy.

Not huge on whites in general but this is a killer wine. Decent fruit, tons of oak.

Sweet and lingering on the palette. Homeydew flavors. Pretentious enough? Love it!
